5k: Modern Art: 2013 Ford Focus ST by Galpin

Famous psychedelic poster artist Peter Max Finkelstein is quoted as saying:  I never know what I’m going to put on the canvas. The canvas paints itself. I’m just the middleman.  The same can be said about buying a used custom car — I don’t know where this car is going to end up, I’m just driving it until the next sucker guy buys it from me.  Celebrate your artistic side by buying this 2013 Ford Focus ST Ecoboost 2L 6 Speed Manual currently here on eBay bidding for $17,001 reserve-not-met with 4 days to go, from Galpin Motors located in North Hills, CA.

This Focus was customized by the artists at Galpin Auto Sports who are known for their outrageous Pimp My Ride style customs that appear at the annual SEMA (Silicone, Energydrinks, Machines, and Ass) show held in Las Vegas.  The last GAS customized car we featured was a Volvo S60 T6 that was a few years old and offered for $32k, so expect the reserve on this one to be pretty high. 

 Under the hood is a 2.0 liter Ford EcoBoost inline-4 that is turbocharged and intercooled to produce 252 horsepower and 270 ft-lbs of torque.  Expect a few more with the cat back exhaust and even more if you are willing to tune the ECU. 

A stock Focus ST features sport seats with body colored inserts and stitching, plus a few extra gauges and faux carbon fiber trim, but this one has been turned up to 11 with custom GAS interior touches to match the LOOK AT ME exterior.
